I had a long talk with H last night so this comes out of that.
I don't walk in your shoes, but, as a wife/observer I can say this.
- You CAN be OK.
- You CAN work on this.
- There will be
bumps in the road but you CAN make great strides to get better.
- There will be people in your life that don't understand. You CAN teach them, or if they don't want to learn, you CAN cut them loose. That's OK. Not everyone you know knows how to handle this.
- You ARE NOT damaged goods.
- You CAN change things in your life that are not working for you.
- You WERE the victim of a crime. Now you are a SURVIVOR.
.....now go out there and do something POSITIVE to make that survival what YOU always wanted.
That is all for now.
